Vision For Physical Education
At Tardebigge CE VA First School, we believe that Health and Well Being is paramount. Physical Education and Sport play a vital role in the physical, emotional and intellectual development of all children. Physical Education and sport is so important in giving children the knowledge, understanding and the tools to make informed choices about healthy living and to have a positive impact on their health and well- being.
As part of our vision, we aim to;
- Improve the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity.
- Raise the profile of PE and sport across the whole school as a tool for whole school improvement.
- Offer a broader experience of a range of sports and activities to all pupils.
- Increase participation in competitive sport.
- Increase confidence, knowledge and skills of our staff in teaching PE.
These are the five key indicators that outline how we spend the PE and Sport Premium budget.

Please also see our Action Plan for a rag- rated copy of the plans for our budget and PE for 2019-20 and for the plans we hope to implement in 2020-21.
The children are entitled to at least two hours of PE a week (see timetables). One lesson is delivered with their class teacher and another with our sport coaches (Mr Allen) who is a part of our school team. (Our School budget supports the staffing NOT the PE/Sport Premium)
PE lessons take place on our playground, field and in the community hall, which we hire for our PE lessons.
We aim for children in Reception to achieve the Physical Development Early Learning Goal. Staff in Reception follow the ‘Get Set 4 PE’ scheme of work. KS1 and KS2 work towards meeting the attainment targets set out in the National Curriculum. Teachers follow the Rising Stars curriculum and children have the opportunity to participate in a broad range of physical activity.
In addition to the traditional sports being played at school, we also invite in specialist coaches to deliver their specialist sport. These sessions with external coaches also contribute towards staff CPD as they take place during curriculum time. Staff will be taking part in PECS (PE curriculum support) to help develop their skills in teaching the subject.
Year 3 begin swimming sessions at Bromsgrove School in the Spring term and continue to the end of the year. They have a final term of swimming in Year 4.
Health and Fitness
We promote health and fitness in school and encourage all children to be active for at least 30 minutes in school a day. We achieve this by;
• Utilising our running track and traversing wall
• Timetabled ‘Wake and Shakes’
• Completing Fitness tests
• Circuit- style fitness sessions held at lunchtimes for all children – led by our sports coach.
• Activities being led by our Playleaders during lunchtimes
• Activity Week (see more information below)
Once a year, we have an Activity Week in the summer. We invite in lots of external coaches to ensure that children have a real breadth of experience in a range of sport and activities. In the last couple of years, we have had activities such as a climbing wall, mini- trampoline fitness sessions, bhangra dancing, cheerleading, hula hooping, an obstacle fun run, horse riding, caving etc.
We have also made links with Middle/ High Schools, who arrange for their Sport Leaders to plan and implement a range of competitive and non- competitive sporting activities for our children.
We have a focus on healthy eating, such as fruit and vegetable taste tests, cycling to make smoothies and healthy baking.
We have lunchtimes clubs set up with our Sports coach, in which he provides provision to support chosen children who may need to develop their skills and to ensure progress, both with skills and fitness levels. Children also may be chosen who could potentially advance their skills and performance.
We are part of the Redditch Pyramid Partnership, which enables the children to experience competitive sport and develop sportsmanship.
Sports Day is a big part of our Activity week, as the children have the opportunity to compete in inter- house, team competitions in the morning and individually in the afternoon.
We currently have the Silver School Games Mark, which was awarded in 2019. We were hoping to achieve Gold in 2020, but due to school closures this was not possible. We are going to work on achieving this next academic year.
